You do not really run make install to overwrite the files in a life
system, do you? Why should this work? Dammit, use a distribution glibc
or at the very least build glibc the way it is done by them. Build a
rpm package (or whatever is your poison) and use the specially
constructed program which can update a life system.

To install the library and its header files, and the Info files of
the manual, type `env LANGUAGE=C LC_ALL=C make install'. This will
build things, if necessary, before installing them; however, you should
still compile everything first. If you are installing glibc as your
primary C library, we recommend that you shut the system down to
single-user mode first, and reboot afterward. This minimizes the risk
of breaking things when the library changes out from underneath.
This is what I have done, with succcess, in the past. If this is not
the information should be updated. This may also save you some time you
otherwise spend in answering mail of 'random' people .
